Naval Aviators require prior knowledge of the time and location of astronomical phenomena in order to properly plan and execute combat and training operations during the hours of darkness using Night Vision Devices (NVD's). This thesis presents a computer application of illumination prediction algorithms which predict the time of selected astronomical phenomena. This computer program is platform independent (given the proper libraries), event-driven, object- oriented, and utilizes a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Using this application, operators in the field will be able to determine the time of selected phenomena and the quantity of illumination, measured in Lux, for a given time and date
